Snap Guide: Santa Fe

Santa Fe hotels, Santa Fe restaurants, Santa Fe attractions

Santa Fe dazzles its 70,000 residents its more than 1 million annual visitors, with its sun-drenched high-desert landscape and happening art scene. No other place on earth possesses such a potent cultural blend. American Indian traditions still pulse strongly in nearby pueblos and a vibrant Hispanic culture has enlivened the region since the late 16th century, when Spanish conquistadores and settlers arrived. Throw in hordes of "Anglos," a term loosely applied to everyone else, and the blend becomes positively multicultural. Exploring it all takes time, which slows remarkably at 7,000 feet. Start here.
